My Motto has always been to put my clients first.
As the Vice President for the Colliers International Healthcare and Retail team I represent Tenants and Landlords in the Colorado market. I take my relationship with my clients to heart and make sure I truly understand their needs in order for them to be their most successful.
I began my real estate career with Keller Williams as a residential broker. I then transitioned into the commercial sector in order to showcase my talent for excellent customer service, thorough market knowledge and am able to capitalize on my experience in the real estate industry. My top priority is to thoroughly understand my client’s needs in order to ensure the greatest amount of success. In my on-going real estate career, I have completed over 1000 transactions in a broad range of service lines totaling in excess of $100 million. I am an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and have earned the Costar Power Broker Award in 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two dogs, playing soccer as well as flag football and motocross. I am an avid animal lover and give generously to the ASPCA on an on-going basis and am an active board member of The Feline Fix.
